Im a hummingbird, but thats okay.

When was music invented? Who hummed the first tune? Was this a craze that caught on, or is music something that lives in us and is innate to our human nature? Oh so many questions and not very many answers. I wonder if anthropologists, or whoever the experts are, have ever investigated this! It has recently occurred to me that there is CONSTANTLY a little song playing in my head. What piece of musak it is exactly tends to vary from day to day, sometimes hour to hour. However, it is always something I’ve heard before though, never a little melody of my own creation. Therefore, had I never ever heard music before, would I still have little tunes playing in my head? If I did, they would be original creations I’m sure. I’d love to be a musician or a songwriter, as I would love to know what “my music” would sound like. It must be a great feeling to compose something and then hear it come together when being played by a band, even if its rubbish, at least you’d know what Maybe this is why I’m drawn to musical types. Today the songs mostly playing in my head are “systematic” by some 80’s artist that I can’t name and “rhythm is gonna getchya” by I theeenk Gloria Estefan. Why? I don’t know. It’s so impossibly random that I can’t even begin to explain it. Doesn’t say much about my musical tastes really though, does it? Except that my subconscious appears to like the fun stuff! Funny thing is, just as I finished typing this my work colleague turned to me and said “Jeeze, I just cant get this Norah Jones song out of my head” – mental. It would see her subconscious is a mellower sort than mine.


  1. Apologies for all the type-o's by the way - am sneakily typing at my desk. I strive for perfection in future, I promise!

  2. Rock 'n' Roll

  3. I know what that's like mossie, am the same, constantly have music going in my head, although that's not always a good thing, as I had James Blunt stuck in there this morning...

  4. Covert posting on work time! Rock!

    Sad to say but I haven't been able to get Lesley Gore's Sunshine, Lollipops And Rainbows out of my head for days now.

    I have the same problem with writing. Whenever I have time and the inclination all too often it's other people's words buzzing around in my head.
